Notes & Reviews:

John Wilson and his orchestra have thrilled audiences with concerts and three recordings of songs from the golden age of musical theatre in Broadway and Hollywood. Available for the first time on CD, are the bonus recordings they made for each album: all hits and all performed with their special swing and elan: 'the feeling is electric, if not ecstatic' (Daily Mail).
